11.2 FPGA Editor - Changing an NCD and then running BitGen from the Probes menu does not generate a new Bit file

Description

When editing a NCD file in FPGA editor and then running BitGen from the Probes menu, I find that the original Bit file and the new Bit file are the same so the new Bit file is not created.

Solution

This is a known issue and will be fixed in a later version of the tools.

To work around this, you should either use a different name for the .bit file or save the NCD file in FPGA editor and then run BitGen from command line using the -w overwrite switch:

bitgen -w xxx.ncd
